Roman Reigns heading to SmackDown Live FOX debut

On Friday, October 4th, WWE SmackDown Live will make its highly anticipated debut on FOX Sports, as the show embarks on its new journey as part of FOX's weekend sports programming.

In addition to the October 4th episode of SmackDown Live serving as the show's premiere on FOX Sports, the event is being billed as a huge 20th anniversary episode of SmackDown, and will feature tons of top stars and legends, including Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Lita, Mick Foley, Booker T, Hulk Hogan, Trish Stratus, Goldberg, Jerry Lawler, Mark Henry, Ric Flair and Sting.

Yesterday, the official Twitter account of The Staples Center in Los Angeles, which will play host to the SmackDown Live 20th anniversary episode, announced Kofi Kingston will be defending his WWE title against Randy Orton and Dolph Ziggler in a Triple Threat match, however, the official website of The Staples Center is reporting a different lineup for the event.

*Card is subject to change*

As always, it's worth noting that the card for the SmackDown Live 20th anniversary show is subject to change, and with WWE having yet to officially announce any of the above matches for the show, it's very possible any number of the advertised bouts could be scrapped, or air as dark match main events.
